TVP POLICE MUSEUM


The Thames Valley Police serve the Community in many ways.


And always of the inclusion of the community it serves. If you fancy a little trip out with a bit of history at the end of it then read the article about the Thames Valley Police Museum below.


The Thames Valley Police museum in Sulhamstead and a small museum dedicated to local policing history in Milton Keynes are opening today (1/9).


The Thames Valley Police (TVP) Museum at the White House at the Thames Valley Police training centre in Sulhamstead is re-opening following refurbishment and after being closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.


The museum includes displays on the history of Thames Valley Police and the five police forces that merged in 1968 to form what was originally called Thames Valley Constabulary: Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxford City, Oxfordshire and Reading Borough.


It show-cases some fascinating cases in our history and includes a new a new firearms display. The collection include items from the Great Train Robbery of 1963, uniforms, equipment, medals, scenes of crime evidence, and from the case of Amelia Dyer.


The museum at Milton Keynes Police Station is also re-opening today. The museum, in its new location, will be opened by Area Commander Marc Tarbit and attended by Roger Young and Len Woodley, both retired TVP Officers and keen Police Historians.


We are very proud of our history and are delighted to be able to share some of this with you should you, family and friends wish to find out more about the history of policing in the Thames Valley.


Chief Constable John Campbell, said: “It is great news that the museum at Sulhamstead and Milton Keynes are now able to re-open following the COVID-19 outbreak, and that we have been able to refurbish and gather new content whilst they have been closed. Thames Valley Police has a rich history and we are proud to provide an insight into this for our communities, through the museums’ key exhibitions.”


Supt Marc Tarbit, LPA Commander said: “I’m extremely pleased to be able to re-open the Police Museum in Milton Keynes today on behalf of Thames Valley Police. I think it is important for our local communities to understand the journey of policing within the Thames Valley and the foundations upon which we continue to develop our service to the public.


Our staff ensure that the museum remains relevant and accessible in order to welcome members of the public time and time again.”
